Fires didn’t approach Columbia over the last two days, but that’s no excuse for every forecaster overshooting the forecast high on Tuesday. This outlier was due in part to a more robust northerly flow than had been seen to that point, and the haze didn’t help. Forecasts across the board leveled off and were close to what occurred, but Accuweather ended up securing a victory by going low on Tuesday.
Actuals: Tuesday – High 65, Low 40
Wednesday – High 72, Low 40
